Hello, I would like to introduce myself. I am a 31 year old wife, teacher, and mother of 2. I love my family with everything I am. difficult child is currently in 2nd grade. He was diagnosed with severe ADHD back in kindergarten. He is currently taking 10mg of Focalin XR. Kindergarten was a nightmare. He would fly into rages, and have to be physically held down until he regained his composure. First grade was wonderful - not 1 incident. We are now 4 weeks into 2nd grade and he has been suspended from school for the first time. He apparently got so frustrated over a math problem that he totally lost control and began screaming at the teacher. When she tried putting him into silent lunch he walked out of the cafeteria and stomped on the assistant principal's foot resulting in his suspension. I have a meeting with the teacher and assistant principal on Monday. How do I get them to understand that he is still learning the appropriate way to deal with frustration. That he is not a "bad" child. doctor suggested he may need a 504 plan and BIP. ANy suggestions for surviving the school year?
